Highly detailed and made out of PVC, this figure is tagged with a price of 7140 JPY and is scheduled for release this month. Grab one now before it’s too late!
Next up is a treat for all Vocaloid (ボーカロイド) fans. Good Smile Company has revealed that Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) is their Nendoroid 300. Though some fans might be disappointed with the result, this little Miku has a bit of a make over; Hatsune Miku 2.0 now comes with a glossier clothes, new parts (specifically a separate neck piece) and brand new expressions. This special little Miku is also slimmer compared to the other Miku Nendoroids.
The girls from the hit video game Monster Hunter now have their own special figures!
